possibly, and this is going to sound a bit snide, please believe I don't intend it to be, but do you think the idea of an infantryman somehow stopping a main gun round from a 120 or 125, or preventing the tank seeing a vehicle behind an infantryman is actually in any way reasonable?Lorcan Nagle wrote:

The MV of some of these rounds is astronomical, and any resemblence to a human being after a hit is purely coincidental, as would be any deviation in the path of the round. In Gulf 2 a 120 DU APFSDS went through one T72 and killed a second behind it, and similarly the M1s had no problems shooting through 5 foot earthen berms to get kills on tanks behind them. Saddam should have put a screen of infantry out front, and we would still be there today
Yes, there is usually no problem moving the fire zone to achieve the desired aim, but I am a bit put off by the idea that to hit a target I should concentrate my fire somewhere else. It seems contra intuative. Am I alone in this?
